She shouldn’t accept being anyone’s second choice. Ben promises to stay with Jane and they decide to let Erica go but cannot let her know where they are or how to get back.

Marissa tells AJ that she and Bianca love each other very much and are going to make a good home for him. While Marissa’s talking to AJ, Bianca tries to get JR to understand that he had nothing to do with Marissa falling in love with her and promises to get Marissa and AJ through this but JR walks back into the room drunk, his demeanor scaring AJ. Marissa knows AJ is trying to be brave but deep down he’s scared and confused and she feels responsible. Bianca doesn’t want her to blame herself and Marissa wonders why it took her so long to see how right they are for each other.
Cara comes home from the park and finds Tad going through Dixie’s things. She tells him about Kathy seeing Dixie in the park and wonders if Tad is not ready to let her go just yet. He says that by going through her things it’s helping him to move forward. Based on something Tad read in Dixie’s journal he gets an idea on how he can say goodbye.
